Work to know why

What pushes you into action? Knowing why, clearly, unmistakably.

What sustains you, enables you to persist through every difficulty? Belief in what you are doing, in the rightness of the path you’ve chosen.

To connect with such an irrefutable purpose can require much time, effort, soul searching, emotional pain. It is well worth your trouble.

You want to get somewhere meaningful? You must know why, and it must be authentic.

In all that you love, in all you despise, in what feels wonderful as well as awful, are hints of that purpose. Take those hints, and work to zero in on your purpose, on your why.

Work to know why. Give the power of purpose to everything you do.

— Ralph Marston
